Happy Birthday to the Boston Idea Group (BIG)!

BIG_LOGOHappy first birthday to the Boston Idea Group! You may be asking, “What is the Boston Idea Group?” At T3, we are constantly trying to find ways to provide value to our clients and help their companies succeed.  After talking to a number of clients and friends, we realized that while the tech community in Boston is strong, the connection between those involved in keeping the offices of the technology companies running did not exist. In these roles, employees are often wearing many hats and regardless of experience level, there are always things they will be doing for the first time.

Realizing the value of the immense amount of information and experience that could be shared and how much these individuals could learn from each other, we created the Boston Idea Group, affectionately known as BIG.  The purpose of BIG is to create a community of office management, operations, facilities management and HR of high growth companies, both large and small, in the Boston area, and bring them together to share ideas and best practices.

We recently had our first meet-up of 2014 at LogMeIn’s headquarters in the Seaport District of Boston. In attendance were employees from DataXu, ZeroTurnaround, Sqrrl, Objective Logistics, and Hadapt just to name a few. Topics of conversation ranged from:

  • How do you communicate with your international offices?
  • What do you provide as a new employee welcome gift?

It was great to see everyone connecting, sharing ideas and having fun.

Over the past year, BIG has been successful in being a resource and building relationships – it’s been a great year! It is our intention to continue to provide a platform and resources for these essential employees in the Boston area to create value within their organizations and succeed in their professional lives.

Our next meeting is coming up this spring – we will post the date and location shortly. If you are interested in joining BIG, please contact me directly at Ashley@t3advisors.com.
